Obituary

Janet Lorraine Spevak, 77, passed from this life on Friday, January 11, 2008, at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines from respiratory failure.

A funeral mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 15, at Iles Funeral Homes - Westover Chapel in Des Moines, with Msgr. Joseph McDonnell officiating. Burial will follow at Resthaven Cemetery in West Des Moines.

Janet was born on October 26, 1930 in St. Paul, MN, to Fredrick Domnick and Elizabeth Domico Colonnella Cornell. She married Edward A. Spevak on June 2, 1951 in St. Paul, and to this union, two sons were born, Nels and Michael. Janet was formerly employed with Karen Acres Nursing Home in Urbandale, as a cook and laundry service worker for 20 years. She was a member of St. Pius X Catholic Church. Janet was a hardworking homemaker all of her life, a gifted cook and loved to have Sunday dinners with her family. She was very proud of her sons and took time to learn and know the sport of football, which became an interest they all shared.

She is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband of nearly 57 years, Edward Spevak of Urbandale; and sons, Nels Joseph Spevak and his loving companion Marlene Weeks and Michael Edward Spevak and his loving companion Linda Miller all of Des Moines. Janet was preceded into eternal life by her parents; brother, Nels Cornell; and one cousin, Beatrice Doggett.

The family will greet friends from 5 to 8 p.m. on Monday, January 14, at the funeral home, where a rosary service will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Arthritis Foundation.
